Remaining day three picks

7a. Racey McMath, WR/ST, LSU

Another wide receiver? Are you insane?

Racey McMath might be the best special teams player in this entire draft class, and this selection is much more about that than addressing the wide receiver position.

If you can get a guy in the seventh round that could realistically play 400 or more special teams snaps as a rookie, why would you not take it? The Broncos drafted another SEC special teams ace in Tyrie Cleveland last year in the seventh round. He has better potential as a receiver, but McMath is probably a superior special teams player at this point in time.

He would come in and fight for a job but his inclusion in the group would give the Broncos a tremendous group to choose from at receiver assuming Hamilton is ultimately traded:

  • Courtland Sutton
  • Jerry Jeudy
  • Tim Patrick
  • KJ Hamler
  • Tyrie Cleveland
  • Diontae Spencer
  • Ihmir Smith-Marsette
  • Racey McMath

7b. Alaric Jackson, OL, Iowa

The Denver Broncos let Elijah Wilkinson walk in free agency (Chicago) and he could be replaced by Alaric Jackson.

Jackson is projected as a guard/tackle at the next level and Wilkinson had started at both positions for the Broncos. Calvin Anderson will be taking Wilkinson’s spot as the top swing tackle on the roster with Ja’Wuan James penciled in as the starting right tackle right now.

7c. Tay Gowan, DB, UCF

To cap off this mock draft scenario, the Denver Broncos get an ultra-confident defensive back who has picked off a ton of passes whether he was playing at UCF or the JUCO level.

He’s worth a shot here in the seventh-round despite his lack of experience against top competition.
